winter rims,do i need the same center bore

My car has 2300 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Yes. No matter the type of wheel - steel or aluminum, or the design, wheels with the proper bolt pattern and hub size will fit the vehicle properly and safely. Wheel diameter, width, offset, and bolt pattern are all things that should be considered when fitting any type of wheels to your vehicle. A site like tirerack.com may be of great assistance when choosing the proper wheels for your vehicle.
